friday five.

It’s that time again, Glitter Girls! Here’s our guide to the weekend:

1. iPhone 5 pre-sale: I’ve always been Apple-obsessed. It took L a little longer to get on the team, but she’s finally ditched her Blackberry and is now sporting an iPhone. So we’re both super excited about the launch of the iPhone 5. Be cool and pre-purchase it here or through your provider’s website. Check it:

2. Nails: As always, we have to share what nail colors we’re feeling for the weekend. I repainted my nails a zillion times engaged in some scientific research to discover the best Essie shades for fall. You’re welcome.

Then, read apartment therapy’s suggestions on how to transform this simple piece into a (practical) show piece.
